My many adventures

Hi Folks, sorry I deleted my paragraph where I tell you all about all the places I've been to.
I'm blessed since surviving breast cancer, to travel around the world to some of the many places I've always wanted to go. There are lots more places I want to visit.
I've been to Scotland, England, Victoria BC, an Alaskan cruise, a fab Mediterranean cruise which took us to Barcelona, the Vatican & Rome, the island of Crete, Izmir & SulcukEphesus Turkey, Egypt and Malta. I have been to Las Vegas, Hollywood LA, Cabo San Lucas, Orlando, Daytona Beach, Tampa, a Disney Cruise to Bahamas and Disney's Castaway Cay island, all over Canada and Hawaii and Pearl Harbour. We can add Cozumel, Costa Maya, Mexico, Belize City and Honduras. What a fabulous way to see the world!
Take the time to do the things you want to do because life is too short and if you wait until you can afford it, you'll likely never go. So get your plans ready and pick a place and start booking your trip. It is so worth it.
Thanks for dropping by. I have lots of posts to put up so stay tuned...


Hi Folks! I have been away from posting because my 40 year old daughter finally got married Aug 27th 2016. It was tiring but the wedding was wonderful and very happy in the end. I sent them on a beautiful honeymoon to Calabogie Lodge in Ontario. The resort was all wood interior with two bedrooms and the master suite with a bed so big. Apparently when the drove back home to Halifax, they started arguing and it lasted all the way over four provinces. Now she feels the argument wasn't so bad. Glad they enjoyed their first vacation ever! His brother loaned them his BMW which drove like a dream.

I still have a great deal of travel posts to put up. I want our vacations and travel to be shared with you all. I'm not sure of what our travel plans will be for 2017, but for 2016, I rested all the time. Retirement is so awesome!! I was able to take pictures of the summer's Totally Eclipse of the Moom, which I'll share with you here on a post. It was incredible for sure.

I had my annual cancer check up and everything was great! It makes me so happy unfortunately, my doctor had to retire due to illness and I am trying to get a family doctor. It is horrible when you don't have someone who looks after you and knows you.

We had a fabulous summer with little rain, although the farmers and rural residents were not too happy. Some people had to pay for water since their wells went dry. This rainless weather is not something we experience so it was a little frightening.

I've been busy trying to find my ancesters with the Foran/Forhan name. Apparently two brothers came over from Dublin, one was name Edward who had a son named Edward born in Prince Edward Island and he had a son named William who had my father. I love doing ancestry but it is very frustrating when you can get no further without the "parents" names.

Well, be on the look out for my various posts. I also have a few products I want to write about as well.
Thanks friends,

Turning 60

It's here, my brother turned 60 April 1st.  He was home today, just resting and deciding to go out to a bar.  He is going to Vegas in May, as he does every year.  I asked him how he felt turning the big 60 and he said the same as always.  He must feel something but maybe doesn't want to express it.

He was mom's favourite, her little red head curly haired baby boy!  I was the baby yet, he was her favourite.  I was daddy's girl.  I always managed to get out of trouble by blaming my brother.  I always followed him around as a child and wanted to join him and his buddies so much.  He would yell for me to go home or get away.  I still wanted to be with the "boys".  I don't think he realized it, but I wanted to be with him because I looked up to him.  For him, I was a burden, a baby that came into his home and took his mommy's attention. I was about 6 months old when mom heard a large smack sound.  She rushed into the room where I was asleep (was is the key word here) but was screaming because my brother Stevie had slapped me in the face and turned to mom and said, " send her back mommy, I don't want her here, send her back". 

Well brother, I didn't go back, I stayed and here I am!  Steve doesn't know it, but we are having a surprise birthday party for him Saturday night at his daughter's house.  I think I'll bring the kids so they can see him and wish him happy birthday, stay for a bit then go back home.

I have so much travel to do this year and then try to fit in vacation is making it tight for me.  The one trip I truly look forward to is my Vancouver trip then on to Kauai, Hawaii.  A crazy bunch of women are going and staying at a resort I booked through my RCI points.  I can't wait.  In the meantime, let's hope we get no more snow!
